A great bass has just the right blend of timeless design and modernized features. The Cort GB54JJ mixes a proven body and bridge design with enhanced electronics, machine heads, and more to give you the best of the past and future.
The Alder body provides a perfectly balanced tone while gives a slight boost on high mid range. It’s one of the ideal tonewood for bass guitar and used by many guitar makers since 1950’s.
The Canadian hard Maple neck provides Cort GB54JJ power and stability as well as contributing a warm, beefy and punchy tone with a strong upper midrange. Dense and rigid yet with just the right amount of tactile flexibility, it responds sensitively to your picking attack and slapping techniques with plenty of articulation and power.
The new Voiced Tone J-style single-coil pickups perfectly complement the big robust acoustic sound of the bass with modern clarity, transparency and vintage warmth. Painstakingly developed by Cort’s engineers by drawing on decades of pickup winding experience, the Voiced Tone pickups feature the highest-grade components and winding techniques to allow the natural character of the guitar to be faithfully delivered to the amp.
Designed and implemented to facilitate easy access to the upper register of the fingerboard, the new Ergonomic Neck Joint increases playing comfort while reducing tendon stress and awkward wrist and finger positions. Now you can solo away and reach the highest notes with confidence as well as greatly improved playability.
